Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. If you are sure you have good spark as well as proper fuel pressure (32 to 45 PSI) then the next step would be to check and see if you have injector pulse. You can do this with a standard 12 volt test light by placing the test end on the power feed wire at any one of the injectors and the ground end on the other wire and crank the engine over. If you have injector pulse the light should flash while cranking. Check this for me and let me know the results.
